Sweetwater STEM Research Fair

AKA "Science Fair"

Back in the good old days, we used to have "Science Fairs", but in an effort to reflect the wide variety of project categories involved in the fair, we ere upgrading, revamping, and renaming our traditional science fair into "STEM Research Fair" to capture what the fair is all about - playing, discovering, and researching with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)


This event will take place in February 2020 - Start planning & Be part of the change!

Get a partner and start looking into a STEM project for the fair.
